Exactly a month ago today, Rapper French Montana became the most streamed African-Born artiste with a total of 40 billion streams. Weeks before this record, he was in the news for a shooting incident that happened during one of his music video shoots outside a popular Miami Gardens restaurant with fellow rapper Rob49 which resulted in a mass casualty.
According to earlier reports, an alleged victim of the incident which left ten people injured has filed a fifty thousand dollar lawsuit over claims that he was an extra during the shooting.

Popular celebrity outlet TMZ revealed that the complainant identified as Carl Leon has sought an amount of $50,000 over what he refers to as negligence on the part of the rapper and crew at the scene of the video shoot.
Details of the lawsuit revealed, based on the plaintiff’s account that Montana and his video crew moved to the scene of a restaurant that had earlier been the scene of a robbery during which the assailants opened fire injuring 10 persons.
The Police Chief of the Miami Gardens Police Department, Delma Noel-Pratt, called out the Coke Boys leader French Montana for failing to follow the proper protocols which could have averted the situation. The rapper in response to the situation has made claims that he was out celebrating at the Licking in Miami Gardens as opposed to reports and insinuations that he was out shooting a video of which the plaintiff claims to have been a part. He described the incident as a “wrong place, wrong time” situation.
Meanwhile, supposed feature artiste Rob49 earlier this month in his conversation with HipHopDX cleared up rumours, stating categorically that there was no music video. Instead, it was a gathering at which he was along with French Montana and the rest of the crew to celebrate the release of their newest single Igloo which was dropping that night. He is currently recovering after taking a bullet to the arm during the shooting incident.
